Rachel McAlpine, author of 30+ books, became obsessed with the ageing process from a personal point of view. At 75 she discovered that her life expectancy was 99, so she devised a boot camp for her bonus years. Result: realistic optimism and a sense of control. Now 80, Rachel is helping others to confront the mixed blessing of longevity and to shape their own old age. A Meet-Up group has begun DIY training with a framework, a set of tools, and three manageable, self-chosen actions each month. She will bring you poems, strategies, terrible cartoons, and the Almost Old workbook.
